that they served in segregated units meant that they were just not considered for that medal, even though some of them deserved it. the army study found that there were seven african-american soldiers who were decorated for their service, but that decoration should have been the medal of honor. they only did not receive the nation's highest military honor because they were black and served in segregated units. president clinton asked congress to suspend the statute of limitations on the award, and in 1997, finally, more than 50 years late, he awarded seven medals of honor to black men for heroism in world war ii. the only one of them who was still alive to receive it was vernon baker. serving is not the same as serving equally. there has been distinguished service by african-american soldiers in every american war all the way back to the revolutionary war on which they fought on both sides. and of course the civil war, and of course world war i, and every war we have had. when hawaii senator daniel inouye died several weeks ago, we remembered his service in world war ii as part of a segregated
president of the united states tweeted out this picture. this picture. this is the final meeting that we know vice president biden took in washington. part of his big high profile effort to put together proposals for policy reform after the newtown elementary school massacre last month. there is a lot going on in this photo. the vice president is there obviously in shirt-sleeves on the right side of your screen. immediately to his right, wearing glasses there, that of course is secretary of homeland security janet napolitano. the white house just announced today that she will be staying on for a second term. now the department of homeland security is not old enough that there are traditions yet as to how long people stay on once they have the secretary job. but this be the first time that somebody has kept the gig for two terms, if secretary napolitano stays throughout the president's term in office. of course, to become homeland security secretary in the first place, janet napolitano had to step down from her old job, which was being governor of arizona. we just passed the two-year anni

with us. >>> richard mourdock wanted very badly to become a member of the united states senate. he beat out dick lugar to become the republican senate nominee in indiana. he got himself a democratic opponent that everybody seemed to think that he would beat handily. and then richard mourdock said this. >> life is that gift from god, and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> if you become pregnant from being raped, that is something god intended to happen. that was sort of the end of richard mourdock. we went on the lose a senate race that he really should have one. and now the new senator from indiana is a democrat, joe donnelly. richard mourdock's view that the government should force rape victims to give birth to their rapist child because god intervened to make sure that certain rapes resulted in the impregnating of the rape victim, that fantastic theology was in the end too much for the residents of indiana to accept. there was also todd akin from the great state of missouri who was chosen by republican
exploited sexually. what's your response to that? >> my response is that women who served in our united states armed forces are more likely, more likely to be sexually battered and abused by their brethren in their own service. you know, the fact of the matter is we have been brushing under the rug, you know, the incidences of rape between soldiers and marines and sailors for any number of years. they don't get investigated. and at the end of the day those women are sent home, their careers are often ended, and the men are simply moved from duty station to duty station and continue to serve. so this is a reality that we already face today. it's not something brand new. at the end of the day being in the armed forces really is a man's world, but we've been operating in it and we've been doing it well. >> all right. goldie taylor, thank you for joining us tonight. appreciate it so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. the "rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. thank you, my friend. >> thank you. >> and thanks to you at home for joining us t

.c. and baghdad is eight hours. so when president obama started speaking in the united states at 8:00 p.m. on that night, august 31st, it was after midnight in baghdad. it was already september 1st in baghdad. and so what is recorded as the end of the u.s. combat mission in iraq gets listed in the history books as september 2010. it was not the end of everything in iraq for the united states when we went through that transition, but it was really when what started in 2003 finally started to end. the page was turned. >> operation iraqi freedom is over, and the iraqi people now have lead responsibility for the security of their country. >> when president obama spoke that night, there were still 50,000 u.s. troops in iraq, and 50,000 americans stayed in iraq after that night for another 14 months until everyone finally left the following december, december 2011. but when the mission changed from a combat mission to the train, advise, assist mission, then it wasn't operation iraqi freedom anymore. it wasn't that same war. it was the way that war came to an end, and that's why it was worth i
these drone strikes as having been reported. they never full on admit that the united states is carrying them out. but it is the united states carrying them out. the fact that we know these things are happening and that our government nevertheless considers them to be deniable is frankly one of the more orwellian things about being an american citizen in the 21st center pi. the closest thing we have to a face for the drone policy or the drone non-policy is this man. he is the face of this policy that we have of killing people outside of war zones using this particular tool. and he is the face of the policy both because he is the man who is reported to bring specific names and specific details of specific targets to the president for the president's personal approval. so to the extent that there is a kill list, this guy is reportedly the keeper of the list. but the other reason that he is the face of the policy is that he is the member of the administration who came forward to give a speech about it. this past spring it was john brennan who gave the first ever u.s. policy address, admitting to
and it's neighbors who are vital partners to the united states. he is very blunt about that issue as he was about the iraq war. and i frankly think it's smart foreign policy. but i do think that that's where he is going to get the bulk of his opposition. >> steve, you are a guy who speaks bluntly as well. do you feel like that, the source of the criticism against him on issues of the middle east and israel, do you feel like that he has sort of refused to be politically correct in his language in the sort of gesture politics that you're supposed to make on that issue, or do you think that it is about his substantive policy beliefs and what he might be like as defense secretary? >> chuck hagel more than any other senator i have known is not someone to jump on media bandwagons. i had a talk tonight with the former chief of naval operations in israel who became the head of the friends in israel of the uso. chuck hagel used to be head of the uso. and he had a long relationship with hagel over the years. and he approached hagel and said i hear that you're not signing on to a press statement t

th state in the united states is of course hawaii. 49th state admitted the year before, alaska. so those were 49 and 50. those are the last two states admitted to the union in 1958 and 1959. what was the last state admitted before then? before alaska and hawaii, the last state admitted in the contiguous united states, the last state admitted on the big part of the map? that was arizona. arizona was the 48th state. it was not admitted to the union until 1912. it just has not been a state for very long, which is maybe why it sometimes feels like arizona is still working out the kinks. but it also means that all of the oldest things about the state as a state just aren't very old at all. the first governor of the state of arizona was in office starting in 1912. only 100 years ago, right? and if you are a schoolchild in arizona, and you are treated to a school field trip to the arizona capitol museum, one of the things you'll be treated to on that field trip is the sight of the state's first governor. george w.p. hunt, as a life-sized wax figurine, right down to the life-sized white sh
